Millie Bobby Brown has opened up about her involvement with TikTok star Hunter Ecimovic, who sparked controversy on social media by stating that he participated in sexual encounters with the 'Stranger Things' star.

The 18-year-old actress discussed this topic in a chat with American magazine Allure. The Brit explained that she experienced an

"unhealthy situation" with 22-year-old Hunter between 2020 and January 2021, when she put an end to the relationship.

"I felt very vulnerable. And nobody on the set [of 'Stranger Things'] knew I was going through that," Millie recounted.

"So it was kind of cool to be able to deal with it on my own, without anyone knowing. Then it got harder when the whole world knew about it.

"In July 2021, when the artist was already in a relationship with Jake Bongiovi, son of singer Jon Bon 

Jovi, Hunter decided to do a live broadcast on social media to talk about alleged intimacies he had with Millie throughout their courtship. 

While he was talking about his relationship with the actress who is four years younger, an internet user commented: "Imagine being an adult dating a child. To which the influencer replied, "I know, I groomed her."

"Everything I did was completely within the law and was approved by everyone I was with," added TikToker

who claimed to have lived with his ex for eight months. "How the hell is there a lawsuit? Her mother and father knew everything."
